why would you buy this for 3.5m, refurb it (doing a nice job)

then rent it out :?:

because you want a house to live in when you return to Ireland but aren't ready to come back just yet, though have the cash to buy it?

Student rent blocks appear to have been excluded from RTB, yet students are facing xx% yearly rent increases. A union is taking a test case.
“Following advice and counsel from public representatives, internal university colleagues and our own counsel we have filed a case through the RTB against Cúirt na Coiribe Galway.
The NUIG Students’ Union will represent a 2017/18 tenant who was a victim of the 18% rent increases. We hope that this will also send a strong message to other management companies of purpose built student accommodation across the country that students and their families will not stand by and allow for their education to be put at risk due to the ever increasing cost of accommodation imposed by these companies.”

Looks like a successful student campaign
Rent caps for purpose-built student accommodation to be introduced

Only successful to some degree - it’ll slow future rent hikes.

But the rents have already skyrocketed in last 2 years... which is exactly what the lads put that loophole in there for. Job done! 8DD

Now there’s a relatively high baseline set for the next 7000 units to come online - which would have otherwise started off with rents (in the same restricted areas) of about 20% less.

This. Is. Ireland.

Tax the crap out of greedy landlords says Cork Charity boss after four drug addicts die...

https://www.irishexaminer.com/breakingn ... 57205.html

The head of Cork City’s Penny Dinners charity, Caitriona Twomey, has called on the Government to spend more money on frontline services in a week which saw the death of four men who used the service.

In an impassioned Facebook post that has sparked a huge online reaction, Ms Twomey said more needed to be done to help those impacted by addiction and mental health problems and to sort out the rental crisis, which has left many working people unable to afford food.

"Greedy Landlords are destroying the Rental Market and forcing people to become Homeless ( Tax the Crap out of these landlords ) and control the Rental Market."

Great idea :lol:

Irish resident landlords need to be punished for not housing the poor and providing appropriate mental services.

Let them exit the market to make way for the new breed of professional landlord. :x

Surely the combination of high taxes and rent controlled prices will create more supply!

Her prescription might not be the correct answer. For the sake of a bit of grace, I'd suggest posters keep their sarcastic comments to themselves.

Caitriona Twomey is not an economist, she doing that work for a long time, and is articulating that something is seriously wrong from her perspective. That's what I took for it.

So she is not an economist - she took to social media blaming an easy and popular target.

Who has failed to provide social housing, mental services, etc? Who pays her wages?

@Luan

A soup kitchen founded in Victorian times is feeding the working poor. That’s some centenary

How much tax would be enough?
It's pretty much 40% and over unless you're talking about REITs.

Clearly, it's not the solution. It's a simple wrong answer to a much more complicated problem. There is no point in discussing it in that way.
